The best clubs in Miami

Club Space
Nightlife

Club Space

An evening-turned-to-day on Club Space’s Terrace is a veritable rite of passage. Thanks to a 24-hour liquor license, partiers often dance through sunrise, exiting into sunset. The first floor keeps heavy with hard-hitting trap and bass artists of the highest caliber, but it’s the upstairs Terrace that gives this place its reputation. Up there, revelers watch the sunrise while dancing to marathon sets from some of the biggest names in house and techno music.

LIV
Nightlife

LIV

As seen on TV and heard in rap lyrics by everyone from Kanye West to Drake, LIV sets the standard for megaclubs worldwide. Nestled inside the lobby of the historic Fontainebleau hotel—itself a backdrop for major motion pictures including Scarface to Goldfinger—LIV is at once opulent and turntbeyond belief. Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Laidback Luke hold down monthly residencies at the EDM powerhouse alongside a regular program of huge DJs and rap stars. And the stars show up to worship. On any given Sunday, you might run into Floyd Mayweather, Lil Wayne or a Kardashian. With a focus on bottle service, there is more table space than dance floor. Deep pockets are encouraged.

E11even
Nightlife

E11even

This 24/7 nightclub is every Miami nightlife stereotype rolled into one, which can make for a very fun night—or day. E11even literally never closes. But, let’s say you’re stopping by on a weekend around 2am (early by E11even standards), you’re likely to see men tossing dollar bills at topless dancers while gorgeous women sway to big room EDM and hip-hop. You might also spot a celebrity or two; Drake, Nicki Minaj and others have performed in E11even’s “party pit.” You’ll spend too much money, wake up with a headache and possibly a few regrets. One thing is certain: You’ll never forget your first time at E11even.

Basement
Nightlife

Basement

Be prepared to be wowed as you walk through the beautifully renovated lobby of the Edition on Miami Beach. Basement is packed on the bottom floor of the old Art Deco hotel where its disco era-inspired decadence fits right in. The club itself is straightforward with a penchant for booking funky underground heroes, but the real showstoppers are the rainbow-colored bowling alley and ice-skating rink just next to it. Partiers often take a break from dancing to enjoy drinks and play a few games. That’s part of the fun.
